LOGDRAFT supports three methods for specifying the location of a boring: Station numbers, a simple one-dimensional offset from a base point, and a two-dimensional grid.
- When plotting a profile, LOGDRAFT determines the horizontal location of each boring from prompts shown on the boring's source heading (discussed in this section). If your data entry form doesn't have prompts for North, East and/or Station, you'll need to add them before you can print a horizontally scaled profile: step-by-step instructions are given in this section
LOGDRAFT "prefers" station numbers over one-dimensional or two-dimensional coordinates. This means that if both a station number and northing and/or easting coordinates are entered the program will use the station number as the boring's coordinate. This can lead to some confusion: If even one boring in a list of borings selected for printing has a station number, the program will assume that all of the borings will have station numbers.
